us now, is a columnist for the "wall street journal," john fund, good to see you, john, thanks for being here and what do you make of all of the charges from the white house and leading democrats, these people showing up at these meetings are actually part of an orchestrated effort and they are not legitimately going down there to express their own views? >> well, that presumes these people have been tolled about the meeting by some outside group or going down there because they are robots. no, these are people with passionate feelings, who are very worried about the health care plan, and the 12 million americans on medicare advantage, their program will probably be terminated, in the next few years and the americans with health savings account, those accounts will be phased out. so, even if they are orchestrated in the sense that people are told to come to the meeting, that doesn't mean they are -- their opinions are not valid and i remember when bush proposed social security reform there were rallies featuring union members and people from all kinds of senior groups and those

with the actions of the mexican government. the mexican government has cooperated with us in efforts to stem this particular problem, to limit this particular problem and continues to work with us in ways we might reverse it. but the underlying problem as i said to president calderon and others, the underlying problem is in the canadian refugee laws and far too easy in canada to make a bogus refugee claim as a way of entering the country tli. we have to change that. it is unfair to those that are legitimate refugees and unfair to hundreds of thousands that are working their way through the immigration system. we will continue to work with mexican authorities to try and limit this problem, but in the absence of legislative change, it is very difficult for our government to control this, other than through the imposition of visa. it is the only tool available to us right now. we need additional tools from our parliament to stem the flow of bogus refugee claimants and also to have additional tools to deal with this kind of problem. >> alex panett amount, canadian press. >> translator: very impo

english should supersede or override black english, and whether black english outlived s usefulness, all of these consideratio and concern is. and, the reason why i say it is this wrong question, is that in the 21st century world, language is in fact your keyo being able to negotiate this world. and, rather than getting caught in the question of whether we should have one or the other, it really suld be a suation of discussing the merits of both, and the other languages we are going to be learning. i just came back fm algiers. there is a pan-african culture festival sponsored by the algerian government and they brought over 5,000 people from artists, intellectuals, scholars, writers, et cetera from all over the african continent and some parts of the diaspora. and the first thing that struck me as i got off of the plane, was that we were met by a group of algerian students, one young lady was 18 years old. and she was already fluent in french and the arab language. but, she was also fluent in english. and we had a conversation with her and we asked, well, you know, how did you learn your
issues. >> thank you for inviting us to have this hearing. we are delighted to participate. virtually our entire economy, our defense system, depends on the electronic medication systems that are extremely vulnerable and under constant attack. the vast majority of the systems are owned and operated by the private sector. unfortunately, virtually all the economic incentives regarding cyber security favor the attackers. the area to defend is virtually a -- limitless. defense is difficult to coordinate an expensive compared to the return on investment. the good news is that we know a great deal about how to prevent and stop these attacks. the bad news is, we are just not doing it. price waterhouse coopers study of over 1000 companies found that those who follow the industry best practices could prevent almost -- and almost entirely mitigate the attacks against him. the 2008 date of age in the database breach report studied and concluded that 87% of the bridges could of been avoided if reasonable and identifiable security practices had been followed. the chief of intermission assurance for th
